Keepers at Taronga’s Backyard to Bush would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Easter holidays!
What many don't realise is that giraffe numbers are drastically dropping in the wild, with a decline of up to 40% in the last 10 years.
Today was the day everyone had been waiting for.
Keepers got up early to give the birds a small amount of fresh wombaroo nectar before their big day.
As part of the next stage of Taronga Zoo’s much anticipated new development for Sumatran Tigers, today we had to say ‘see you later’ to our much-loved male tiger Sakti as he embarked on his journey to Taronga Western Plains Zoo.
When you head down to Victoria you don't expect the diverse range of native wildlife.
Our Brolga, Billy is still very much enjoying her walks around the zoo. The thing she enjoys more than anything else though is when she can forage for grubs and other insects, which comprises part of her wild diet.
The Easter Bilby is going to be delivering some awesome Easter Eggs this year at Taronga!
